High-speed cameras, especially ones that can reveal the interactions and motions of light particles, promise to lead to improvements in everything from telecommunications, to the processors powering all of your electronics. The new camera’s creators have already worked with a German company to develop a working prototype of the technology, and they estimate it will only be a couple of years before other researchers can get their hands on one, too. One day, such technology might even help sports referees make a decent call every once in a while.
